  1. Validated Engineering Tools for Thin-Ply Composites

    SBC: Opterus Research and Development, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Opterus Research and Development, Inc. proposes to develop and validate multi-scale thin-ply High Strain Composites (HSCs) constitutive modeling tools for incorporation into commercial finite element analysis codes. The constitutive models will capture the time-temperature-load-deformation viscoelastic characteristics common to HSCs as well as the yielding or permanent deformation associated with ...

  3. Integrated Mid-Infrared Sources Enabled by Waveguides Written with Femtosecond Lasers

    SBC: AKTIWAVE LLC            Topic: T8

    This proposal addresses, for the first time, the demonstration of integrated mid-infrared sources based on waveguiding in a bonded solid-state laser material and periodically poled nonlinear material. A focused femtosecond laser beam allows for precisely localized modification of the refractive index of a material, therefore enabling to create waveguiding structures. The offeror has demonstrated f ...

  5. Turbopump Design for Deep Throttling Capability

    SBC: BARBER-NICHOLS INC.            Topic: T802

    This project will demonstrate the benefits of a partial emission pump coupled with a zero net positive suction pressure inducer design to achieve robust, deep throttling capability. This pump application is well suited for 5k to 15k lbf thrust range rocket engines.

  6. Passive Wireless SAW Humidity Sensors and System

    SBC: SENSANNA INCORPORATED            Topic: T601

    Phase I demonstrated the technical feasibility of creating surface acoustic wave (SAW) based humidity sensors that respond rapidly (under 0.5 second) and reversibly to a wide range of humidity levels using nanoparticle and thin polymer films. This proposal describes a Phase II effort that will result in the development of multiple uniquely identifiable, wirelessly interrogable, passive humidity s ...

  7. Adaptive Magnetorheological Isolator for Ground Support Equipment

    SBC: Techno-Sciences, LLC            Topic: T602

    The minimization of vibration-induced damage has become a critical issue for rocket launch ground support electronics (GSE). In particular, the effect of high acoustic and exhaust blast loading during launch results in large amplitude motions of the support structures, which can transmit damaging loads to the GSE. This results in the need for extensive check out and frequent repairs of GSE syste ...

  8. Wavelength Drift Corrector for Wind Lidar Receivers

    SBC: SIGMA SPACE CORPORATION            Topic: T401

    We propose to develop and demonstrate an receiver system utilizing our novel technique for tracking and compensating for laser wavelength shifts in lidar systems. During Phase 1, we demonstrated that in addition to tracking and correcting for laser frequency drift, the system is able to track and correct for etalon frequency drift (in fact, only this relative frequency drift can be tracked). Dat ...

  9. Picosats for Autonomous Rendezvous and Docking Technology Demonstration

    SBC: EMERGENT SPACE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: T601

    Over the next decade, a host of new technologies and capabilities will be needed by NASA to support Project Constellation. For risk reduction considerations, it is desirable that they be flown on other missions prior to use on vehicles such as Orion or Altair. An innovative and cost-effective approach to doing so is to use picosats, which are miniaturized spacecraft with masses on the order of a ...

  10. Tunable, Narrow Line Width Mid-Infrared Laser Source

    SBC: Maxion Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T401

    Maxion Technologies, Inc. (Maxion) and Professor Mario Dagenais and his group at the University of Maryland (UMD) jointly propose to develop a compact, efficient, single mode, narrow linewidth tunable laser source in the 3.2–to–3.6 micron wavelength region. This effort, if successful, will assist NASA in its trace gas detection objectives by supplying NASA with the most critical (and difficult t ...
